On Saturday, December 11, 2010, more than 150 high school students participated in CHCI's Ready to Lead program at Lehman College in the Bronx, NY. Lehman College President Dr. Ricardo R. Fernández provided welcome remarks.

Students participated in workshops on college planning and financial aid. They also took part in a leadership development workshop, led by CHCI Alumnus Diana Acosta.

In addition to informative workshops, students had the opportunity to meet and interact with community leaders and professionals from the New York City area.  The day's activities concluded with representatives from the Hip-Hop Summit Youth Council sharing a powerful message about making obstacles vanish through education.
